On July 17, 2013, I am set to serve time on behalf of the MDA - Muscular Dystrophy Association - in the annual Sacramento Executive Lock-Up. This event is done every year, locally and nationally, to promote fundraising on behalf of the MDA. These funds then go towards research regarding a variety of muscular ailments, including ALS (i.e. Lou Gehrig's Disease). And because many of these diseases have no known treatment - let alone a cure - there is little to no medical assistance for providing necessary care and comfort to those afflicted. Thus, money raised also goes to providing the care and assistance those victims need.
Please visit my personal fundraising page here (http://www2.mda.org/goto/jdhein22). As you can see, I have already raised over 10% of my bail. However, if each of my regular readers of my blog contributed $10.00 apiece, I could easily double what has already been raised. And every dollar counts - so even if you can only afford a $5.00 donation, it will be appreciated.
